I Know He Lives!

This year has been incredible. It was exactly one year...tomorrow...that I was diagnosed with

mantle cell non-hodgkins lymphoma. It's been a journey and I have not been alone.
God has

carried me and has been with me every step of the way. I have an incredible family and loyal

friends which have been a great support to me. Thank you to all that have contributed money,

offered prayers, and given service. I love each of you. God has provided for my needs and has

inspired great doctors to know what medicines my body needs. I feel great and am well on my

way to complete remission.

This year, my grand daughter, Rebecca and I are in the Mesa Arizona Easter Pageant. It's called

"Jesus The Christ". (

We are in 4 scenes together. Buyers at the temple-Jesus teaching the multitude and healing

the people--The Triumphal entry--and the finale.

One of my favorite parts is when Jesus heals the sick people. I reach out to Him as if I want

to touch Him and be healed. my heart, I already know that He has touched me and has

healed me. I think in my mind instead...that I just want to thank Him for blessing me.

It's a miracle!

Then towards the end of the pageant when we all sing "I Know He Lives"....

I sing with all my heart...because I know that Christ lives today. I like to share that message.

He continues to speak to His prophets and to heal and bless us.

I invite all that are able to attend the pageant to come and bring your families and friends.

It's a wonderful way to celebrate the life and teachings of Christ! I hope it doesn't rain

because even if it does the show goes on!

I love people

I was just thinking about how much I love people. I love my husband and it was so fun to go

with him to visit our daughter Christina and her husband and baby up in Hurricane Utah this

last weekend. It's hard to have had them move out of state....but it was fun to visit them.

I love my brother Richard. He brings a special warm spirit wherever he is. His love for me and

others truly shows. He's been working on our computer and I love to be around him.

I love to talk to Maria during the day...just chatting about whatever. It was great to go to my

nephew's wedding yesterday and hear Pres. Huber give such wise counsel in the temple. I

enjoyed visiting and meeting new people at the reception. Then a great friend, Arline Parker

called today and scolded me gently for not writing on my blog. I told her that I had totally

forgotten....I guess I have been feeling too good!!! I love her. Then, I discovered a darling note

written by an old friend of mine that said she was thinking of me for no reason. Within the note

was $100 for my pills. God is continuing to pour out the blessings through friends.

top it off....2 seconds husband called and said he invited Bryan and Maria and Tate over

for dinner. It's almost 6:00 I better make something besides the beans that I have

cooking in a pot. I love my husband and family and friends. Life is great!
